Welcome to Apollo!
There are lots of challenges for year 6 students, such as: SATs, it being the last year of primary school and the transition into secondary school. Due to this, we have been learning about the 5 Ways to Well-being. We are learning to take care of ourselves (in lots of different ways) so that we can handle the many different, challenging - but exciting - experiences that this year brings.
PE is on Thursday. We run the Daily Mile every day.
Homework is given out on Thursday and due back by the next Tuesday.
Spelling tests are on Fridays.
Have a look at the links below to get involved with learning at home.
